of the most surprising hits in Germany this summer, "La La La" by
Naughty Boy and Sam Smith advances four and is now at #5, while Fergie's
"A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" makes it (also
surprisingly) inside the top ten as it climbs six positions to #10. As a
solo singer Fergie has been in the top ten twice so far, last with "Big Girls Don’t Cry" (peak #6) in 2007.

unexpectedly, the biggest new hit of the week comes from Jessie J and
her comeback single "Wild". The song debuts at #12 and marks the third
time the British singer has appeared inside the top 20. Her biggest hit
remains "Price Tag", which peaked at #3. She also provided guest vocals
to James Morrison's #19-song "Up".
Up four to #19, Bruno Mars'
"Treasure" enters the top 20, becoming the second single from his
sophomore album to do so ("Locked Out of Heaven" peaked at #7 and "When I
Was Your Man" at #23). This is Mars' seventh (out of eight) singles to
reach the top 20 in country.
